Cinnamon loading wheat

Built in 2003, the Cinnamon will be making its 3rd appearance in the Twin Ports today, the first this season. It is one of the ‘duck’ boats operated by Canfornav Limited in Montreal. This one is named after the Cinnamon teal, a duck found mostly in the Western United States. Other ‘duck’ boats visiting Duluth have been the Bluewing and sister-ship Greenwing, and the Mandarin. On her last trip here, the Cinnamon had an all Ukrainian crew; they loaded wheat for Tarragona, Spain. On this trip, they will load spring wheat for Italy. Photo taken November 9, 2004.
